Summer School 2019: Transformative Human-Environment Research & Participatory Methods: From Co-production to Co-producing
Monday 16 – Saturday 21 September 2019
Human-environment research is the interdisciplinary study of how humans live in, affect, govern, reflect upon and perceive their natural environment, and how, in turn, that environment supports or constrains human life and culture. Researchers are increasingly mandated to engage more actively with politics and the plurality of epistemologies and perspectives on these challenges that exist in society. So, how may human-environment research take an active role in transformative research for and with society? This is the overall question for this summer school which will be addressed by applying science and technology studies (STS) and political ecology perspectives to participants’ own cases as well as getting first hands-on experience with transdisciplinary research methods.
Electron Microscopy course – The Basics: from A to W
Monday 23 - Friday 27 September 2019
Electron Microscopy (EM) has rapidly developed as a powerful research tool for high-resolution imaging, leading to high-ranking papers, a Nobel price and recently in The Netherlands to a big NWO award. New, more powerful electron microscopes and the possibility to work at very low temperatures (cryo-EM), have made it possible to achieve atomic resolutions. During this course, you will be introduced to all these novel developments.
